CHURCH/PARISH HALL/GROUNDS REPAIR - UPDATE
  

This summer, we had several major expenses on the property. The outer doors on the parish hall had to be replaced, the parking lot needing repairs and the HVAC in the church finnaly gave out. All these repairs totaled $75,382.00. While none of these projects were included in the annual budget, we are able to pay for them with monies from checking and monies set aside in savings. If you are interested in donating to offset these costs, (and help build up our savings for future needs), it would be greatly appreciated! Donations can be placed in an envelope marked Capital Expenses and placed in the offertory baskets, mailed to the office, or donations can also be made on our WeShare online giving site under Capital Expenses: https://seaschurch.weshareonline.org/. Thank you for helping to improve your parish property!
